My local gaming shop's owner hooked me up big time with a Bonesinger. I love the model and I'll most likely use it as a Farseer because of the resemblence.
I was wondering if there is anything in the works for it's own stat line?
No, not really. Bonesingers are a non-military part of the Eldar. They are builders and creators, not destroyers. The model was just a special offer by GW for a different thing really. I would be very suprised if it got its own statline (and where would they put it? The era of WD units is pretty much gone).
wouldn't it be kind of like a tech marine.
Sleeping, not dead.
Removed by the moderators.
i guess they could totally be repair bots for a mecha eldar army. Other than that i don't know a use that wouldn't require forge world items.
Yeah they have no place in the Eldar army, really. Where a Techmarine is trained to fight, the Bonesigners are trained to build stuff, shape materials and reapir damaged equipment far from the battlefield, nothing else. Heck, they don't even sell it on the online store anymore.
hokiecow: If they wanted us to have rules for the Solitaire and a Bonesinger then they would have been in the Eldar codex, not in a White Dwarf. It doesn't take that long to make those rules so they couldn't publish them in the 'dex. It's just like the Direct Sales only Oiler grot, a special model just for fun with no rules upcoming for it (of course, the Oiler grot might get something in the next codex).
I would be extremely suprised if the Bonesinger and/or Solitaire got their own rules.
Da Mighty Camel, They've done it many time with Tau. They have limited edition Ethereal,
Shas'ui, and kroot Sharper. You can not purchase those limited editions in the store but you can get the standard models. In the case of the limit ed Kroot Sharper it was a special character, Anghkor Prok - Kroot Master Shaper, with had rules released on the GW site.
I can see GW releasing a standard Bonesinger when the rules are posted. They could be saving the Bonesinger and the Solitaire for a speacial event, who knows. But I don't see GW releasing a model that no one can field. I'm sure their is a method to their madness. And as I understood the 2nd ed used to have a Bonesinger.
Go Hokies! :cool:
